    Ok. The roti shop then? Just name it for goodness sakes. Anyone with sense isn’t down that end of town anyway.

    Guess no one offered him a job at the last job fair he went to.

    Day after day and night after night serious crimes are increasing and all we kept getting is false information that cayman is safe.

    Wake up and hold your politicians accountable.

      They could easily do that at the polls but people fear having to do jury duty. So they refuse to register and instead complain on social media to CMR. So accountability not happening anytime soon I’m afraid.

        Registration should be mandatory for all young persons. Maybe tied to getting a Driver’s License.

    Much of the problem, imo, is also that Caymanians once stuck together and would shun criminals and their antisocial behaviour. We all knew who they were and their works were quickly discovered.

    We have entered into a new generation where some criminals are protected. There is also a …. sometimes-earned … distrust of the RCIPS. If we cannot call in and report something without the reporting person being identified, then we will no longer report. We have to live here. You all have already seen to it that we don’t have the tools to protect ourselves.

    The RCIPS has to work hard to mend and temper the iron of the former trust the people had. I think part of that was in the past the majority of RCIPS officers were Caymanians.

    We have some way to go. It’s not helpless, but it’s a pretty fair distance from hopeful. It takes the whole community to identify, try and convict criminals. The law-abiding folk are unused tools in this endeavour.

    You should just announce if arrests were made, it is the norm and expected that no arrests were made.

    We are going to screw around with this kind of crime, until somebody gets killed. Tourist lives matter no more than our own, but if a tourist is robbed, mugged, assaulted, or killed, that will be the end of our tourism market.

    I don’t think the tourism market helps Caymanians all that much. Still, I don’t want those very few to be compromised.

      Singapore don’t have thousands of Jamaicans and Jamaican fathered abandoned youth to deal with. But if they did, they would deal with them.

        The bigger problem are multi-generational disaffected Caymanians (of all ages and ranks), who falsely believe that everyone they don’t know, owes them something that wasn’t theirs to take/steal. Thefts of all kinds and at all ranks, widely accepted as a birthright.

          So true

        • Annonymous says:

          9.23am There are 40,000 Jamaicans that we know of in Cayman.There are only 20,000 Caymanians and at least 3,000 of them are fathered by Yardies. Tell me who the biggest problem is.

        Inconceivable! From my research there is zero evidence none I tell you of any Jamaican crime on island.
        Singapore would certainly welcome the diversity of Jamaicans to their community with open arms as a slice of Jamrock would stimulate Singapore with good stuff.
